Dear Clark Center sponsors, donors, and patrons,
We want to thank you for your continued support of our Clark Center throughout these extremely challenging, unprecedented times. We know you have missed the experience of live theater and we have missed you too! We would also like to provide an update on our current plans for reopening as the situation stands today.
Currently, in the state of California, we are approved to host up to 200 guests in our theater. While we are thankful to be able to return to offer live performances again, the restricted audience size does pose financial considerations for show producers, our renters and us. We are working closely with our renters and producers to bring performers back to our stage and
are already securing confirmations of upcoming bookings!
We have been diligently following state and county guidelines and will continue to do so. We are members of the Central Coast Coalition of Arts Leaders (C3OAL), an organization formed last Spring to foster collaboration and increase communication between SLO County arts organizations and venues. Over the summer of 2020 the Coalition championed a comprehensive arts audience risk and safety perception survey intended for use to develop plans for safely presenting live performances and reopening procedures as COVID-19 restrictions are lifted in our state. We are thankful for their efforts and proud to be involved.
Upon opening we will ask all of you to help us by continuing to adhere to guidelines regarding wearing masks and social distancing. While being able to open with limited capacity is a step in the right direction, we still have a ways to go. We need your support now more than ever.
To those of you who are holding on to previously purchased tickets, we will be sending specifics regarding rescheduled dates as we confirm with the show producers. We ask for your continued patience and again, are very grateful to all of you for keeping the faith and for not losing hope. There is a bright light at the end of this tunnel!
With sincere gratitude,
The staff of the Clark Center
